I really enjoy fine dining, but I have to fess up, we ate at Bubba's 3 times in the two weeks we were in Princeville. They were such a perfect lunch after snorkeling, kayaking,,,just about anything. The burgers are very thin, a double was perfect for me. The first time we ate there I ordered my burger (no cheese) with... More

After seeing so many Bubba Burger restaurants on Kauai we decided to give one a try. The burgers are large and tasty and worth a visit! Price is right so expect crowds at this outdoor venue!

You will see Bubba's proclamation that it's the best burger on the island. In my humble opinion, it's a slight step up from McDonalds, if that. Try Keoki's Paradise in Poipu for a much better and also more expensive cheese burger or Merriman's Burgers and Pizza, for an even more expensive burger that's better than Bubba's but not as good...

This is a very fun burger place. I would definitely recommend it. You can eat outside and people watch.

Yes, you have to queue for quite a long time to order. And then you have to wait for your burgers. But you can read all the amusing notices over the kitchen to pass the time, and admire the unflappable efficiency of the 3 teenage staff, or just people watch - Bubba's is bang in the middle of Hanalei.

It's a difficult task for a vegetarian to find a good veggie burger... but Bubba's Taro Burger surpassed all of our standards. We went back more than once for them and crushed a few after the long hike we did earlier in the morning. Love Bubba's!

This place is at the heart of Hanalei so demands to be tried. And their Ahi (aka Yellowfin Tuna) sandwich was the best $9.95 I spent that day. Enjoy

This is been around for 20+ years. Always packed at lunch time. Good place for a hamburger. The local fast food equivalent.

For a burger joint on the main drag in Hanelai, Bubba's should make a major commitment to expanding their operations, so that they can get their food to customers in a quicker span of time. More talk than substance at this point, and I haven't even got my food yet.
